Skyscapes is part of the National centenary celebration of Jon Schueler’s birth. Born in Milwaukee in 1916, Schueler studied at the California School of Fine Arts from 1948-51 where his teachers included Clyfford Still and Richard Diebenkorn. A contemporary of Mark Rothko, Franz Kline and Jackson Pollock, he discovered Mallaig on the Scottish west coast in 1957 and this landscape informed his work in NY throughout the ‘60s. In 1970 he returned to Mallaig for 5 years and then painted there most summers until his death in 1992. Essentially an abstract painter, Schueler nonetheless grounded his work in nature especially in the light and atmosphere of the west coast.
